    How to uninstall a game which doesn't have an uninstaller?


    Hello,

    I would like to completely remove a game from my PC,but it doesn't have an uninstaller,and it is not listed in Control Panel (Add or remove programs).

    Please tell me how to fully uninstall it with removing of its registry keys too.

    Most likely it's a "portable" game that just got its folder copied to that point and nothing else.

    The best you can do is to delete its main folder. If you really want to track down every piece of it, you can try searching in AppData for its name or developer and deleting those folders too. Same with registry.

    Another chance is that somehow its uninstaller got removed and its folder left behind. In this case, if you have an installer handy, you can try reinstalling it, then using the regenerated uninstaller to remove its last bits.

    Well, what's the name of the game?

    Using a registry cleaner to locate and eliminate the game's stuff therein - not a good idea, agreed. I like the earlier-implied idea of using something like Revo Uninstaller's Installer module to reinstall the game, then use Revo to uninstall the game.

    Hi
    The answer is use free BC Uninstaller , and look at the top window options which show locate folder or file to uninstall. This is good for programs without their own dedicated uninstallers
